DAY 5: Snickerdoodle Bars
A delicious cinnamon layered bar with the tang of snickerdoodles in an easy to prepare bar cookie.
2 1/3 cup flour
½ tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1 ¼ tsp baking powder
1 tsp cream of tartar
½ tsp salt
¾ cup butter, room temperature
1 ¼ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
3 eggs, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ Tbs ground cinnamon
2 Tbs brown sugar
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Combine the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, cream of tartar and salt in a large bowl; set aside.
Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar using a mixer. Beat in eggs and vanilla. With the mixer on low, slowly add the dry ingredients. Continue to mix until just combined.
Spray a 9×13 inch pan with cooking spray. Spoon half of the batter into the pan and spread evenly. Mix the cinnamon filling ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle evenly over the batter. Using a spoon, dollop the remaining batter across the cinnamon filling; do not cover the cinnamon mixture completely.
Bake for 20–25 minutes or until lightly golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
